Buying in Strathaven
Strathaven, South Lanarkshire, is an affluent former market town and Royal Burgh of some 7,500 residents. The town is located roughly 6 miles from Hamilton and roughly 18 miles from Glasgow in relatively rural surroundings. Strathaven still shows its medieval origins in its Common Green, which is a market square around which the town has developed.
Today, it has become a popular commuter town for families set in scenic South Lanarkshire countryside with a relatively high number of amenities and things to do given a town of its size. The town centre has a number of typical high-street and independent businesses, quite a few restaurants and cafes offering a variety of cuisines. The Strathaven Hotel is found a short walk or car ride north of Common Green, there’s also Strathaven Park which has lots of facilities like a toddlers play area, bowling green, putting green, boating lake and more. There’s also a nearby garden centre, auction market, and paintball facility. Each year in August the town holds a Balloon Festival, the only hot air ballooning event of its kind in Scotland attracting some 30,000 spectators annually. For those that enjoy golf, Strathaven Golf club is an excellent parkland course.
The town also holds a variety of historical places of interest. Strathaven Castle is thought to have been built in the mid-14th century. The remaining ruins sit atop a rocky crag surrounded by Powmillon Burn and can still be seen today. The castle is linked to the town by the ‘Boo Backit Brig’, a small arched bridge, and the old Town Mill which stands next to it is now an Arts and Heritage Centre. East Church, built in 1777, is known for its landmark spire and was the place of worship for the Duke of Hamilton who maintained a summer home nearby at Dungavel House.
Being a commuter town transport links are fairly well developed. The A71 passes through the town and connects to Edinburgh and Kilmarnock. The A71 also offers connections to the M74 motorway and allows for travel into Glasgow or further. Bus services connect the town to local destinations such as East Kilbride, Hamilton and Larkhall, which has the nearest train station. The town currently has no dedicated railway station of its own but would undoubtedly benefit from the addition of one.
In terms of local schooling, Strathaven is served by three primary schools, Kirklandpark, Wester Overton and St Patricks; Strathaven Academy is the town’s only High School. Strathaven Academy was in the top 20 out of 339 secondaries across Scotland in 2019 for Higher exam performance.
As of February 2021, the average price for property in Strathaven stood at £241,975. This is a rise of 1.61% in the last three months (since November 2020) and a very good rise of 9.32% since November 2019.
